Track Name: Pacified
The time is right, it's been way too long
It might be time to hunt down this song and
See what turns up tonight.
A flaming heart, can't get my fill
Rob that train just to buy a thrill
And get back, Jack, and steal some satisfaction

Who said that I could never have?
Who said that I would never be?
Who said that I should settle for this?
Oh no! Well, that was just me
With my belly full of couch and TV
Pacified

I can tell by the way you stare
That you pretend not to care, but
Somehow you always end up in my hands
I stand around like a silent fool
While you wait for me to finally make a move.
may I have the pleasure of this dance?
Track Name: Ghostwalking
Ghost walking in my shoes
Ghost strums along my blues
Rides on through electric dawn
And drives on

Encircle me with barbed wire
Imprison me with chains
Nourish me on belladonna
And bathe me in the acid rain

Sidewalk grows below my feet
And I go through the world and hardly ever sleep
And I see things no one can hear
And hear things that people fear

Wrapped up in your nightmares
Gotten lost in your dreams
I know your myth
And all that you lay down
And I could sell it back

Siren rings within my head
Shaman tell me, am I dead?
I see you've gotten lost behind the mask
And your fingers fumble for the clasp

And I wonder can the soul survive
Slip free the traps and come back alive
Or maybe ...
Not
Track Name: Fire
Here I stand
You try to drain me of all my blood
Drain me of all my strength
But I feel the energy
Flow around
And I know
There's still a light in my eyes

And so I smile
Just because I'm not dead yet
Or is this what you would like me
To forget
When you debase the body with shame
You threaten me with flame
You've darkened my skies with your ash
Poison my Sun
And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle
and flash

Am I mad
If I laugh to myself
Am I mad if I laugh
Crazed if I howl
For my lover
Or raise my arms
To greet a welcome breeze

Or if I smile
Just because I'm not dead yet
Or is this what you would like me
To forget
When you debase the body with shame
You threaten me with flame
You've darkened my skies with your ash
Poison my Sun
And try to blind me with your gaudy sparkle
and flash

Do you see the beauty
Of the coming night
Or only the death
Toward which you fly
Through the vision of a world
Falling down in ash
Do you even know
That you are dancing on someone else's back
Do you even know that you are dancing
Do you even know that you are

Side by side
With the wind at our feet
Dance out to the fire
Singing songs of five
Discordant choir
Come alive
And howl
